Sorry for the long silence since my last post – nevertheless, I’m still in-time to wish you and your family a Happy Lunar New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!
It has been a busy but fun Lunar New Year week. We chilled out at relatives’ house, watched the lion and dragon dances, ate lots of yummy bak kwa and melt-in-the-mouth pineapple tarts, played some card games and prayed at the Chinese temple.
Surprisingly, our Little Edison enjoyed the family gatherings so much. He immediately made friends with the other children and had fun playing with them.
On Thursday (Day 4 of LNY), we went to Sentosa Island to experience the floral extravaganza. This year, the award-winning event, Sentosa Flowers, is themed as “Enchanted Spring”. We took some pictures as we strolled through the gardens of bloom.
Roar like a Lion!
“Mama, I want to make a silly face!”
“Hey, Mama! I saw a starfish right here!”
“Oh Mama, flowers are so boring. Can we go to the beach now?”
After visiting the Sentosa Flowers, we headed to the Siloso Beach for a dip. The weather was so nice, it wasn’t very sunny and it didn’t rain either.
“Yay! I love the beach!”
“Daddy digs the sand, I pour the water! We worked together!”
“Let me take some water from the sea.”
“Hey Mama! The water is still cold!”
We spent about two to three hours on the beach before we washed and packed up. Soon, it was dinner time and we took a train to the Resorts World as there are more dining options over there. And we ended up at Din Tai Fung – their signature steamed shrimp dumplings are my top favourite!

We discovered that the restaurant has Nyonya Fish Head Curry on its menu too. So, we gave it a try. Taste wise, I would say that it’s just average but we like it served on a burning claypot so that we can enjoy the dish sizzling hot.
